This isn't so much of a solution as it is a warning.

This achievement is going to be very hard for anybody trying to get it. Getting through a single level untouched is an achievement in and of itself but to go through an entire game without dying is absurd. You have the ability (if you can call it that) to take just one hit and then you die. You'd have to memorize every single detail throughout the game to get this achievement. Everything you do in this game to try and get this achievemnt must be prethought out.

I don't believe anyone will be able to get this achievement unless they hack/glitch/cheat, and if it has happened, proof would be much obliged.

There is a negative and positive glitch to the game. The negative is that it rarely resets your stats including death count properly and as a result, carries them into any new game. The positive glitch is that if you erase ALL save files and start again, you can sign out after dying, and only have to do each level without dying.

Delete save file.
Play game.make any options adjustments, brightness/volume, in the intro/trainride ONLY.
When dying, instantly sign out.-it is not that strict.
Sign back in, load game

HUGE THANKS to challenger428 R3NEG4D3 Leeono TsubakiCalamity Thanks guys for the feedback and info. All of us pioneered this achievement by trial and error but unfortunately we were duped by a programming error.

Here are the facts:
-Simply restarting a level will not work, it will VOID the achievement
-Clear ALL save files from; DASHBOARD/SYSTEM/STORAGE/GAMES AND APPS/THE WAR OF THE WORLDS(not the game itself.) Doing this will guarantee that all stats and times have been reset.
-The game saves when making adjustments in the options menu, when starting a new level, restarting a level and when starting a new game
-Upon dying, hit the guide button and sign out.
-Other methods that work are going to the dashboard and powering off

-Beat the game at least twice before even attempting this
-I am not sure if getting other achievement during this will create a strange save so I would recommend getting the other 10 first. They are pretty easy.
-I created some poor quality videos that cover what I consider the hardest parts of the game, the links are below
-I also created a far too detailed guide if there are specific parts that are giving you trouble

After reading comments, I decided to test this game on a dummy account before playing on mine. After a few playthroughs, I attempted this achievement by returning to the dashboard immediately. Upon finishing the game, no achievement. I retried using sign-out and powering off methods with the same result. I attempted this again on a second dummy account with no success. Believing that it had something to do with the fact I was not online, I finally tried with my real account. I managed to play through the game with only 2 deaths and was even able to power-off before the deaths happened. NOTHING

Fear gripped me as I began to think there was a permanent error with the game and I decided to erase everything and start again. I re-downloaded the game I played through the game with only a few deaths that I simply dashboarded after. To my astonishment, at the end of the game I was awarded this achievement. Inspired, a miracle happened next. Immediately after getting this achievement, I started a new game and finished it without a single death and then.....nothing. It took me over a week to do it again but I always went to the dashboard and erased the save file and I got I am Arthur Clark

But then the next weird thing happened. I planned to make some videos for this game. I went to a forth account that had never played this game and upon starting it up I was awarded two achievements; this one and Arthur Clark. I erased files and replayed on one of the first accounts using a sign-out method and was granted this achievement. This proves to me that erasing save files is necessary.

Thanks Mr XBob
